About Recent Work by Jerome Hiler

Year Released:

Jerome Hiler’s films continue to explore the power and mystery of color, light, and rhythm. This program includes his three most recent films, Marginalia (2015), Words of Mercury (2011), and Bagatelle (a work-in-progress). Words of Mercury is Hiler’s “… loving farewell to color reversal 16mm film. The Bolex camera became a container for a process of distillation. I wanted to extract as much as I could from my remaining rolls of Ektachrome 7285.” The film takes a journey from darkness and a bare world through the seasonal spreading of seeds to a place almost choked and repugnant with color—a place that invites death. Director Jerome Hiler is scheduled to be present. (16mm Presentation)
